to me united nations, security council related, global responsibility to europeans like to prefer 3+3, which means the european union is the main player. i'm a little nervous about if you're in europe you had better say three plus the otherwise you will not be served dinner. [laughter] but i think it is, five plus one of course is important to keep on. but i think u.s. should not do, u.s. does not hide inside this group. u.s. has now time to take responsibility. and to change, to start with its relations with iran. isn't it time now, they give up on the occupation of the u.s. embassy in connection with islamic revolution of 1979. should also the iranians try to forget the shooting down in the gulf of iranian airliner. and we have i think americans in iran who was not part of 9/11. it is very difficult to me what the problem with diplomatic relations with iran but there was no problem for the u.s. to ever i think -- [inaudible] truman and eisenhower had relations with stalin. my god, stalin was something much worse. but these leaders, there is sort of nervousness to be in touch with

think of nations and companies, there are rise and fall stories and the united states is so clean not on the fall side but political campaigns are a lousy time to think about the truth of what is happening. one of the hard truths, there were five white guys, we tried to figure out, tall guys and doug and we are very well aware of this. you would not believe how busy -- we had a more diverse -- for all those who say we would love to build you into the conversation, what i want to talk about is a strategic economic choice facing the nation. strategy in economics, is there more something fundamental about the way the united states is positioned, with its choices are. michael porter who is here with us, wave so we know who you are, not very diverse, michael is a distinguished professor from harvard business school who has his own followers, acolytes. when i worked in the senate in the 1990s, our whole staff were riveted to much of michael's work and guidance, we read just talking in the green room that had we listened and moved the needle on the shoes back then the united states might not be

about the same time. for women of color and the entire united states teaching the, two blacks, one nation, one latina. and that is not so long ago. a few years afterwards i went into the classroom and having mostly men in a classroom, most of whom on election night before the election was decided i had to turn us in a classroom and was filled with that romney's. i woke up to a brand-new world. this is the way law schools looked when i was coming out. when you first started teaching to the woman, when he lived in massachusetts he didn't just say professor, he said blake though you could really profess anything. i really rocketed me back. so i think in addition to the mockery generally and the electorate, in addition to the demeaning of women generally, you sort of have a celebrated when were hired, but it's also a double whammy in a political setting. >> i'm in washington. it's an interesting place. i love d.c., but when you look at the washington that we are talking about, when you actually go into the halls of congress and have a visual, the next time you look at something going o

that we should want newcomers to the united states to have a good shot at becoming successful americans who can support themselves rather than rely on taxpayers, who can and do fully participate in local, state and national political deliberations, fully participate in our culture and who see themselves and are seen by others as americans. these are things we want, these are things we should take steps to achieve. assimilation shouldn't, in my view, mean the elimination of what's distinctive about immigrant cultures. the assimilation i have in mind is compatible with immigrants changing and ideally enriching the national culture. the important thing is that newcomers and native-born americans alike have a shared sense of belonging, consider their interests to be common interests rather than antagonistic ones and be able to communicate with one another. an immigration policy that takes assimilation as one of its watch words would, i think, look different in important respects both from what we currently have and from some of the proposals that we often hear about. i think prett

nation. that is what one of the things that makes us very defensive from the united states. if in canada, whereas the united states you say go west to find your identity, in this country is going north. that is part of something that the finds for for our identity and has promise in abundant resources. but let me save this. one of the things we try to do as the government, and with some success, in the economic circumstances, is we have come we couldn't be in a better situation than to have the united states as the only real neighbor, our closest economic partner and ultimately our ally and friend on everything in the world. at the same time, we are canadian national who value what is distinctive and unique about this country and in our own modest way that this is that country. we seen no incompatibility with that. what we have tried to do and try to tell canadians is there is no need for true canadian nationalism to have any sense of anti-american, we're different, distinct, unique, we value that, there are aspects not just of canadian policy but character that have proven themse
